Hi. I am brand new here. My 11 year old started vocal tics a few days ago. She would say “hmmm” again and again. She said she couldn’t help it. She had a compulsion to do it. I have been feeling upset and worried about it and also feeling all alone in my concerns. I tried to join a Facebook page for parents of children who tic and 3 days later they still haven’t accepted me for some reason. Meanwhile, my 21 year old son and 19 year old daughter think I am making a big deal about nothing. They also say that what I am doing is only successful due to a placebo effect. I gave my daughter an Epsom
My God, I have been feeling so alone. My 11 year old daughter began displaying a vocal humming tic about 2 days ago. This is the first time she has had a tic, ever. I have been feeling so sad, alone, scared and basically helpless. To make matters worse: 1. I tried to join a facebook page for parents of children with tics 2. I gave her an Epsom salt bath, which she soaked in for about an hour and it didn’t help much. She’s not loud, but she’s humming away over here.
